In November last year, the gospel artist explained on how he got into music from 2004.
He stated that back in 2004 he loved to associate with famous people so that he could understand why and how people got to know them, he added that Mr. Ong’eng’o a then a very famous musician came looking for him when the then President Daniel Toroitich Moi came to open a school in Kisii County.
Mr Ong’eng’o was looking for a drummist and Embarambamba became his best choice. It was while playing the drum that the name Embarambamba came to be, after playing the drum, Mr Ong’eng’o called him Embarambamba.

In 2006, they recorded a song, Entururu, which gave him a huge following and many came to know of Embarambamba from the song.
In 2007, Mr Ong’eng’o, seeing Embarambamba as a possible down liner of his legacy, he gave Embarambamba a chance to go and record his solo projects as all this time they were recording songs together.
In the period, Embarambamba recorded a number of songs alone. In 2010, he worked with Sagero known also as Man Pepe until 2016.
Embarambamba had a dream one day where God told him to go and sing, because he was alive and God was also alive.
It is because of this that Embarambamba tears off his clothes during performances as a significance of chance from the secular to the Gospel way of life.
His first ever gospel song was Yesu Moyale.
His ever swift jumps from left to right, to front and back flipping, to dipping himself into dirty water and even tearing off his clothes, this is to mention just but a few of a thousand and one unique techniques Embarambamba is embedded with.
He attributes this to the fact that when he is performing, the Holy Spirit lands in him and gives him the extra strength.
His theatrics seem to have wowed some quarters in the country with a video gone viral showing a lady showcasing some special skills she learnt from the Kisii gospel star.
